Every year, the Child and Family Life Department at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital throws a tailgate party for the patients and their families. These events give the patients, and their loved ones, the opportunity to enjoy a fun fall Saturday without leaving the hospital. On average, close to 100 individuals participate in the events that includes food, arts and crafts, giveaways and games.
This year, Meijer helped make the tailgate party even more special by serving the tailgaters food and drinks, and donating both U-M and MSU apparel.
Hospital representatives fans of all teams are welcome – even a Wisconsin fan stopped by. The purpose is to give the patients and families a break so they can just have fun together.
